Given the demonstration of SHA-1 collision-creation, one of
my colleagues at work (where we use the github repo) asked if I might try
comparing a pristine svn head working copy against a (purportedly)
corresponding git repo.

For my first try, I created a shiny new local clone of the repo we
actually use internally, checked the latest entry (from "git log") that
showed a "Notes" field:

    svn path=/head/; revision=313813

and accordingly used "svn up -r 313813" to update the svn working copy
to (what shohld be) the same point.

I then issued:
diff -ru -I '\$FreeBSD.*\$' ../svn/src FreeBSD >/tmp/svn_git at 313813_diff.txt

While I rather expected the first "difference" identified:

Only in ../svn/src: .svn

I was quote surprised to find 64 more "Only in ../svn/src/...." lines.
(I have attached a copy of the file.)

Is this expected?

Then, after some discussion with my colleague, I directed a Web browser
to <>, selected "Clone or download";
saw that "Download ZIP" was an option, and then -- on the command line
-- ran:


which ran uneventfully.

A subsequent:


nattered on at some length about inflating, creating, extracting various
file system-resident objects rather uneventfully... until the end, which
looked like this:

  inflating: freebsd-master/usr.sbin/zzz/zzz.8

Are the whines expected?  Is it also expected that the exit status
will be 0 when whines are issued?

How could one possibly "respect" a misogynist, racist, bullying con-man??!?
